Perempuan Buruh Industri - Yayasan Annisa Swasti (YASANTI)

Perempuan Buruh Industri

Women industrial workers produce products such as: textiles, clothing, cigarettes, plastics and pre-packaged food.

This labour group is very mobile and flexible as factories will often change their product or location. As a result, Yasanti has focused on education and awareness rather than organisation. They particularly have problems with issues around pay, conditions and benefits. Conditions that workers fight for include marital, child and menstruation leave.
